McKee Botanical Gardens, Part 2

This is a Dragon Tree (Ficus) named because of its aerial roots and long surface roots used for getting nutrition and giving support.

These purple flowers are on the same stems as the orange balls. I think I put this picture in upside down!

Raindrops on a monster leaf. Little drops bump into and blend with big drops.

Another choice location for a dragonfly.

I looked out my window and saw this one-inch-long frog on the screen…

so I ran outside and took a picture of the other side of him.

Then he jumped onto the side of the house and bounded into the garden.

It was just getting to be dark outside so I took a flashlight and went outside to see what was out there. This frog is about three inches long. I tried to get him when his feet were suctioned onto the window, but the reflections didn't work.

I'd love to be able to walk around on a wall like this.

I found one late-night lizard resting in the Rhododendron.
